Default 25' Contender FS

Anyone here own one or been on one. I got a chance to hop on one today and really liked the boat. Boat can handle F250's. Would be a rocketship with that power. Any thoughts ideas or options?

I have spent a lot of time offshore fishing on my fishing buddy's 25 Contender. Great boat! It is set up perfectly for fishing with the flat deck, big livewell, good access to the bilge. The ride is awesome with the deep 24.5 degree V. I think F250s would be too heavy, though, and could lead to bad running characteristics (porpoising, etc.). 200 HPDIs or 200 E-Tecs are the best match. He has 200 Evinrude RAM Fichts and they are great. Plenty of power and speed for all sea conditions. Can't go wrong with a 25 Contender.
